[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2017-263-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current
to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/samba-4.4.16-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This is a security release in order to address the following defects:
SMB1/2/3 connections may not require signing where they should. A man in the
middle attack may hijack client connections.
SMB3 connections don't keep encryption across DFS redirects. A man in the
middle attack can read and may alter confidential documents transferred via
a client connection, which are reached via DFS redirect when the original
connection used SMB3.
Server memory information leak over SMB1. Client with write access to a share
can cause server memory contents to be written into a file or printer.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
